Riese & Müller Load touring HS

The full suspension “Load” now for the first time comes with double Bosch batteries. The long range and high performance make the Load the most successful all-rounder on test. A test win for the family-friendly Riese & Müller Load touring HS in the Transport Family product group.

Thanks to its 350 watt motor, compact construction and efficient derailleur drive – which however will result in fast wear of the chain and sprockets – the “Load” impressed with its especially lively ride quality. The low load bed ensures that the centre of gravity is favourably placed, low down, and this also applies for the load-bed seat for up to two children, equipped with high quality straps. The only thing putting a brake on test riders’ enthusiasm was that it was barely possible to reach the permitted 45 km/h on the flat. But thanks to the high range, the remarkably low weight and the excellent adjustability of many components, the “Load” scooped “Good” verdicts in Tour, City-Comfort and Easy pedelec groups. In the cargo pedelec product group “Transport Commercial 50+” it also received a “Very Good” – here only the comparatively small load bed held it back.
